MAY YET VOTE BY MACHINE ADDITIONAL TICKETS WILL OVERTAX CAPACITY Unleee Tried at the Coming Election Expensive Apparatus May Be Useless for an Indefi nite Period The voting machines which have bo far provil an "Tpennive Investment for Lo» Angeles may be used after nil at the coining city election. Tf ndrtltlonnl tickets are filed be tween now and next Wednesday at midnight the machines will be useless on account of tho bulktness of the bal lots. The limit has now been reached. At tho city clerk's office. It Is under stood that an independent ticket will be filed by petition. Tickets which have already been filed are the Republican, the Demo cratic, the non-pnrtinan. the Public Ownership and the Socialist. Be those there must be <i blank column for candidates that have not been named by a convention or a petition, and a column for charter amendments. Oeven Column* Filled This makes a total of seven columns, all that can be accommodated on the machines. Unless the machines are used at the coming election, city hall attaches say, there. Is not much likelihood of their being used soon. Blanket tickets, such as are sub mitted to voters at general elections, contain too many names and parties to make It possible to find keys on the machine for all candidates. City elections in Los Angeles gener ally bring forth more tickets than the machines can accommodate. At small er elections such as the annexation election November 12 it Is impractical to use the machines because of the expense of transportation to and from the polls. Expensive to Move It costs $5 to move the rtiachines and there are seventeen. The polling places are widely scattered. Originally thirteen machines were bought for $700 each, city and county dividing the expense. Two years ago for a test they were used at an elec tion. The machine in the Ninth ward broke down and the voting was fin ished in the old-fashioned way. After ward the city and county officials, after a conference, daclded that the machines were worth while and bought fifty-two additional machines each, making a total of 117. About this time the United States Voting Machine company sold similar machines to Detroit for JSOO each, or $200 each less than Los Angeles paid for them. Voucher Held Up Because of this difference of $20,800 the mayor has refused to sign the voucher for $36,400. Rust attacked the machines while stored In the city hall basement, then the city paid storage charges of $1.50 per machine per month and now a temporary building has been put up alongside the court house on New High street where they will remain in idleness. BLOW TO ROADHOUSES IS GIVEN IN A LARGE NUMBER OF TOWNSHIPS One of the features of last Tuesday's election was the voting on the question of local option. i Out of fifty-five townships forty-three ■foted to abolish the liquor traffic for *he coming two years, and as a result many saloons and roadhouses will be compelled to go out of business January 1 next. Those voting "dry" were Lamanda, Sawtelle, Duarte, Ballona, Alamitos, San Fernando, Glendale, El Monte, (ilendora, San Gabriel, Cahuenga. Alta dena, Walts, Eagle Rock, Moneta, Azusa, Compton, Montebello, Artesla, Sierra Madre, Florence, Spadra, Clare raont, Sunland, San Dlmas, Shorb, San Vicente, Rivera, Covina, Los Nietos, Fruitland, Colegrove, Sherman, East Whittier, Lankershlm, Ivanhoe, Gar dena, Hyde Park, Calabasas, Wlseburn, Downey, Palmdale and Clearwater. The townships which favored the con tinuance of saloons are Del Rey, La Llebra. Wilmington, Catalina, Del Sur, La Canada, Newhall, Acton, Green Meadows and Rowland. EVEN IN DEFEAT DR. LAMB SEES HOPE IN THE FUTURE Dr. W. A. Lamb, the non-partisan nominee for supervisor of the Third district, who was defeated by S. T. Eldrldge, the Republican machine and Democratic push candidate, in a state ment to the public says: "Most sincerely do I express my pro found gratitude for the noble and un wavering support glv*n me during the campaign now closed.

"While I was defeated, yet many grand things were achieved which must bear fruit in the future. We hay« learned who will oppose the Interests of the whole people and what measures they will resort to to defeat the same.

SOLDIERS' HOME VOTE IS THE SUBJECT OF SLIGHT DISCUSSION An Informal discussion of the vote at the Soldiers' home has occurred among attorneys who are Interested in local politics, but no formal action has been taken and none is expected. Reports that the law committee of the non-partisan county central com mittee had taken up the question and possibly would decide to begin pro ceedings which might result In throw ing out the Sawtelle vote on the ground that the Soldiers' home is located on government territory are not correct. Should the Soldiers' home vote be thrown out It would result In the elec tion of at least two of the non-partisan candidates, but no action will be taken by the county non-partisan law com mittee. Within a few days the county non partisan committee will give up its rooms In the Merchants' Trust build- Ing, but the organization will be main tained in a nominal manner, It will require the official count to de cide the contest between Frank Hen derson, the non-partisan candidate, and Fred E.

SEVERAL FIRES CAUSE A PANIC INCENDIARY BLAZES STARTED IN NEW YORK Vaudeville Perforrrier Is Arrested on Suspicion of Being the Man Who Applied the Torch By Associated Pr^ss. • NEW YORK, Nov. 9 —One woman Is dead, a man is In a hospital suffering from severe burns, 2000 persons fled from their homes In panic and thou sands more passed a sleepless night as a result of a series of incendiary fires in the two blocks bounded by Sixtieth and Sixty-first streets and Columbus and West End avenues early today. Scores of persons whosp live were endangered by the conflagration were rescued by flreme* In all there were five fires, every <*ie of them incen diary, between midnight and 3 o'clock this morning. The woman who lost her life was Mrs. Caroline Swain, 70 years old, whose home adjolng one of the build ings which was tired. She died of heart failure, Induced by fright. Adrian Hopkins, in a hospital with his hands and feet severely burned as a result of climbing down a redhot fire escape, is seriously injured. The rupldly succeeding fires, the crowds of evicted tenants and the ter rifying rumors spreading through the neighborhood, with the constant ap pearanM and reappearance of the fire engines and the big squads of police, raised the people throughout the vicin ity to a high pitch of excitement, which did not lessen until daylight brought v measure of reassurance that the in cendlarlnn was stopped. Frank Morris of Boston, a vaudeville ptfi former, was arrested on suspicion vi siting the fires. The police alleged that in each of the buildings tenants averred that when they tied from their rooms Morris was the first man they met. When Morris wan arraigned In court Fire Marshal Prlal expressed the opin ion that he was mentally irresponsible and asked the magistrate to commit the boy to Bellevue hospital for five days for examination. Tht; magistrate, how ever, refused and held Morris in $2000 ball for further examination.

Tenor and Baritone Make Hlt»— Familiar Number* Su perbly Rendered, and Whole Opera Almost Flawl««» •Tls a »rreat pity that the Auditorium could not havo been Inaugurated and the opera season begun last night, In stead of the nlgnt before. Then none 'or the harsh things said of the Lam 1 bardl forces would have been Written. As It la, the opinions expressed of the opening were fully justified, of course; but It would have been ho much better for nil concprned, singers, management ■nd especially the public, had It been possible to have expressed the views of the opening that one most glaaly enunciates about last night's produc tion. l i ■ • ■ fi;'. ' As all know, "Lucia" Is quite n dif ferent proposition, «o for ns difficulties Of both vocal and Instrumental score are concerned, from "Alda." The latter contains some of the most stupendous work ever cut out for musicians to do. "Lucia," on the contrary, both vocally and In the orchestral parts, Is much lighter; more musical to the pur, per haps, but far less demanding on the performers. This In itself insured an lmprovement last night; then better acquaintance of singers and players with one another, the Inevitable smoothness coming with a secondig?er formance, and the general air of confi dence and absence of premier nervous ness, all militated for the success of the "Lucift" Interpretation. So more was expected. But not one of that audience that fore gathered in the beautiful Auditorium was prepared for the treat that, was his. It was "a surprls.-. so overwhelming that •It almost took one's breath. It was a performance so good In all around excellence that it fairly lifted the listeners out of their seats, and the whole applause of the Inaugural was .not so great as was manifested time after time for some special number of the familiar score. This very familiarity of the opera helped to make It the more enjoyable, t oo; there was a satisfaction in hear ing such old favorites as the love duet, the sextet and the mad scene rendered so superbly, and with such consummate artistic skill, that made one overlook any minor defects and gave one cause to applaud to an almost hysterical ex tent. I • Consequently it was a hitrhly dellght efl and enthusiastic audience which filed out of the great building after Edgardo's splendid lament, and went its way with the divine harmonies still ringirg in its ears and the salvos of cheers still reverberating. Pity 'tis that this could not have been the cas» one night before. ■ To begin with, last nicht brought out eight principals o% super-excellence — Tromben, a lyric soprano of winning sweetness and charming personality; Salvaneschl, a tenor with a voice of gold and liquid as a brook, - and Antola, a baritone of finest quality. This trinity was backed by several others of minor note as to roles, but of the same high excellence of voice, especially Canettl, a basso who made his bow | Thursday and who won much), favor then. I These principals rendered 'an almost flawless score, • and were a delight from . begin ning, to end. j Not once «dld the . four named ' fail . to rise' to' the demands 1 made upon them, and In several in stances they outdid anything of the sort yet done here. . ; , '„■ :r: r . Tromben Is a soprano whom all took to their hearts at once. She Is a fragile looking woman, of considerable beauty, with a voice of pure lyric quality. Her lower notes are excellent, and her high ones, though a bit thin at times and suggestive of falsetto, are still so gen uine that they charm. Her voice is not as strong as -opsslbly some roles that require, but as Lucia, the plaintive strains in it fit the part to a nicety and make It all the more acceptable. Her acting is far and away ahead of what one expects of a vocalist, and the combination makes her a tower of strength, a singer to whom we will look for many an entrancing appear ance In the near future. Salvaneschl, the tenor, also possesses a jewel of a voice, of pure lyric timbre, which he handles superbly. Not once did he fall to make the most of his chances, and his golden throat poured forth a stream of melody that was faultless. Antola's baritone Is reso nant, steady, never harsh, and fully as flexible as any that the writer recalls. He was especially good in the scene over the marriage signature with Trom ben. Oanettl had his chance in the last act, and his vocal achievements es tablished him at once. From the beginning the opera took F.trong hold on the audience. The love duet between Tromban and Salvaneschl was great; the sextet got a tremend ous recall, and was better done the second time even than the first— the city never heard it more perfectly ren dered—and the mad scene, which per mitted Tromben all sorts of opportuni ties for vocal pyrotechnics, was su perbly given: though on the recall she did fail on her final high note, this was gladly overlooked. Martini, as Bucklaw, was poor, but his part Is of fo small importance that It scarcely marred even the ensemble. The chorus, praise be, redeemed It self, too, so far as it could. It sang without Individuals trying to single themselves out, and kept with the or chestra, which Guerrerl had well In hand this time. If one doesn't look at the chorus, really it Isn't so bad now. The costumes saem to have arrived those last night were all thnt the opera demands. The scenery, too, was ade quate, and the stage management shows some Improvement. The prompt ers should be gagged, or permitted to take the center of the stage; they an noy as they are at present concealed. "Aida" will be repeated this after noon and "Lucia" tonight. Go tonight by all means. The same casts will sing. WOULD SEND FILIPINOS TO COAST OF MEXICO MEXICO CITY. Nov.
